This will be the 5th year for the NW Ohio’s “Liberty Camp, sponsored by NW Ohio Conservative Coalition.

We are set to launch our fourth year of Liberty Camp in Perrysburg. This year’s theme is “Yankee Doodle Inventors”. We hope to present some local entrepreneurs and inventors for the children to spark the idea of individual freedom and creativity in our society. We are in the process of inviting young and older people who have been successful in the areas of transportation, aviation, culinary talents, agriculture, and entrepreneurship to come speak to the youth at camp so they might become inspired to do the same in their lives.   The camp will be held Aug.3-7, from 9-12, at the 577 Foundation in Perrysburg.   Youth from the ages of 9-12 are invited to attend. There is a cap of 25 students who can enroll. The cost for the week is $25 per student.

Past Liberty Camps have had themes of founding history and the Constitution, local history at the time of the Black Swamp Era, and Presidents of Liberty. The idea of a “Liberty Camp” was conceived by two teachers, Cheryl Garlow and Susanna Hrosko, who wanted to enhance what the students were learning in school and make history come alive. With the emphasis on testing, there often isn’t time to develop creativity and participate in “hands-on” fun activities. The theme and content of each camp has been woven through crafts and music as well. Vivienne Sommerfield, a well-known musician and career music teacher has been Director of Music each year. This year’s committee includes Joyce Hammer and Sue Larimer who are also professional teachers. They are all patriots who have a love for children and freedom. Other volunteers help in many ways. We are endorsed and supported by the Northwest Ohio Conservative Coalition.

Liberty Camp will be held from 9-12 noon with a mid-morning snack at 577 Foundation, 577 E Front St. in Perrysburg. Please be punctual in bringing your child to Camp and picking him/her up each day. The fee of $25 ($20 if two or more children from the same family attend) is due with the return of this registration form. Enrollment will be limited to the first 25 children who return the registration form and fee.
